• Zork and Sweetie wanted to know how to configure their Wii to access the Internet using a Mac. Well if they're running OS X Tiger you can share you connection using the share setting in the System Preferences. Just select the Internet Tab and click what connection you want to share (ie wired, wireless) and how you want to share (ie through Airport wireless connection or the RJ-45 ethernet jack). On the Wii side setup the network as you normally would for any network router.
• Alex wanted to know if purchasing a 1080p HDTV was worthwhile if the only content he would be viewing was in 720p. Robert said that a sub-1080p resolution HDTV is fine if the price is right and you are on a budget. However, the extra pixels that a screen with 1080p resolution offers helps future-proof yourself and is a better match for 1080i broadcast television like that from NBC, CBS, PBS, and Discovery HD. Also, the Xbox 360 and PS3 game consoles are capable of scaling video output to 1080p resolution, and the Blu-ray and HD DVD video formats are encoded at 1080p resolution - ideal for a 1080p resolution display as well!
